I may not be American and I may not officially recognise the Thanksgiving holiday as such but today I would feel beyond ungrateful if I didn't give just a little, but very specific thanks.
I am eternally thankful for the inventor/creator or the portable DVD Player.
Yesterday we had a 5 hour trip to take with the kids to a family baptism.
Anything beyond an hour these days requires a family sized pack of sedatives to ensure we all survive.
So we may have borrowed the DVD players without asking from the in laws house while they were away.
We may have even had to listen to Aristocats and Cars simultaneously, but that was a joyous and welcome treat in comparison to the whining, grumping and pouting we usually have to contend with. (Besides isn't the Cars soundtrack pretty cool? Or is that just me?)
I now know what is going on my list to Santa.
It may not be very indulgent but anything sanity preserving has to be the best gift EVER!
